I'll sit on the fence this time.

 

Still waiting for their latest promised patch for the Navigraph extension in the Phenom 300 since October.

I sent them a video, they acknowledged and promised they would release a new patch in days. When I contacted them recently about the same issue, they said they had no date for a new release.

I will consider this C90 only if the feedback is mostly positive.

A frame hog? This was expected, not the worst of my concerns honestly.

Given that the Proline 21 in the Hawker still has serious deficiencies and is only usable with Bert's GTN 750 mod, I will give this one a miss. And I'm still waiting for the Phenom 300 fix as well...

Hi Folks,

 

Yep - recently I was all set to pick up the 550 Cessna (always been a fan of the straight wing jets) with the FMC update - hoping Carenado had changed in my extended absence - having been burned by Carenado before - I did my due diligence and researched the product - I read that you can't program airways into the FMC which are available in the real world one... I guess they just really don't get what draws many of us to this hobby - realistic performance and systems operation... LOL - it's such a shame - same old story - beautiful pretty models with half baked FDE and systems... Granted - the newest Carenado aircraft I own is the PC-12 which - thankfully - I picked up on sale as I'd be pretty unhappy paying full price for light models... I'll wait for MilViz to satisfy my King Air needs with their 350i...

 

I'll follow along for feedback...

 

Carenado - prove me wrong - please !!!

:wink:

 

Regards,
Scott

Can you only get the $10 discount if you have bought the previous C90 directly from Carenado ?

No, everywhere. But you'll have to buy the new version from the same reseller where you bought the steam version. Meaning, you'll have to wait, because currently it is only available on their own site.

 

Thanks Ryan.

Not very encouraging, unfortunately.

I have the problem that on ground the Kingair starts rolling even with zero power. You need the parking brakes to get the bird stopping and one in the air the enginges stopped working after 3-5 minutes and the power reduce to zero....looks like an engine shut down....any ideas??

 

Cheers,

Mark

I just got this as well and the autopilot needs a little work. VNAV not working. Also on the 2 flights (engine dies) I got a low oil pressure, left engine N1 drops. The first time it happened right after take off, the second time it happened 15 minutes into the flight.

 

I've never flown with this type of FMS so everything is new to me and probably why VNAV isn't following ALT constraints. Other than what Ryan has mentioned, its a really nice aircraft with good FPS.

 

You also don't need the C90 to get the $10 discount, any previously purchased aircraft seemed to work. I tried to use my PAYPAL but the discount wouldn't show so I used my CC directly and got the discount. For now only Carenado sells it on their website.

I had the engine failure problem too.  Then I read the performance manuals that came with the install.  Next flight I flew according to the numbers, and completed an 1.5 hour flight without any issues at all.  Watch the torque settings!

Yeah that's what I've been doing... seems they modeled over exceedance but theres' no mention in the manual about it.  Of course there's really NO flying manual at all.  ARGH  Think this is the first time they modeled over torque/temp!

 

Has anyone been able to tune the ADF?  I can switch between values but can't actually tune the values.

I am going to purchase this tonight knowing what I am going to get. The screwed up A/P, horrible FMS and annoying bugs that would be caught if any quality control was done.

 

I am hoping for a GTN shoe horn in this bird. Berts mod on the 550, Hawker and Phenom saved those three aircraft.

 

Fingers crossed.

Ask Carenado to send me a copy, and I'll have a look..  :hi:

Could someone tell me how I get the $10 off? Is the price $39-$10=$29? Or is it $49-$10=$39. I have bought the earlier model direct from Carenado but the $10 off doesn't seem to show up, unless it magically appears just as I pull the trigger on the CC.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Apparently the $10 discount is no longer available (someone correct me if I'm wrong). It was $39 - $10 = $29.

 

In situations like these you have to act fast. I wasn't able to jump on their 1-week sale on some aircraft that I wanted this past holiday. Luckily for me and few, I was able to get this for $29.

 

It's a really nice aircraft and I would pay $39 for it anyway.

If you previously bought the C-90, when you check out with the C-90GTX Carenado automatically reduces the amount by $10.00. I bought it this afternoon for $29.95.

Flew well and worth the buy. Can I be more specific? No, not until I fly it more and learn to operate the Proline21 avionics. Flew it 1+30 straight from install with no problems other than operator error.

Any videos of this plane yet? I googled but only found videos of the older version.
